A security deposit of £75 is required per set of equipment – this may be paid by debit/credit card and is refunded when the equipment is returned in good, clean condition.
Any damages will be assessed and charged accordingly.
Losses will be charged at current replacement prices.


First check availability with our office – then complete the Booking Form and return it with a deposit of 30% of the total or £30 (whichever is the greatest) or payment in full to secure your booking.  No deposit - no reservation!

Advance Peak season reservations - May, June, July, August.
To help us give our best service to all our clients please let us know immediately of any changes to your booking.  If we reserve canoes/kayaks for you they must be paid for in full.  If you are organising a group booking it is your responsibility to ensure that you receive payment from your members. Balances must be paid before commencement of the hire  - this may be on the day or in advance.  Deposits are non-refundable.

In the event of a cancellation by us due to adverse weather conditions, unsuitable water levels etc. an alternative date or venue will be arranged.
In the unlikely event that this is not possible we will refund your fee. 

Our boats are normally available for journeying between Pool Quay near Welshpool and Dale End in Ironbridge. For areas beyond these points hire is by special arrangement only.

Please Note:  Whilst we encourage young people to paddle and to take part in canoeing activities we must point out that we do not hire equipment to persons under the age of 18 years.  This does not exclude them as part of a family group or an organised group where adults are taking part.
